Make a philanthropic gift

At The Nature Conservancy, we partner with individuals, corporations, trusts, foundations and Private Ancillary Funds to deliver innovative programs that address the needs of our unique Australian environment and the communities that depend on it.

Our approach to conservation works because we develop new, science-based methods for long-term preservation of critical lands and waters at massive scale.

Invest in Australia

Our philanthropic partners are central to helping us create and deliver our vision for Australia and our planet. You can choose to give to a specific project, or you can provide flexible funding that helps us build our capacity to deliver cutting edge conservation, delivering tangible results for people and for nature.

A philanthropic gift to The Nature Conservancy often leverages other funding sources and can achieve impact at a globally significant scale.

We have developed mechanisms to enable market-based solutions and impact investing to deliver sustainable conservation, economic, social and cultural outcomes.

When you make a significant gift, you will receive clear and costed project proposals so you can be sure your gift is being carefully invested in conservation. As the project progresses, you will receive program updates detailing the impact your gift is making.
